Lakers give GM Mitch Kupchak a contract extensionPosted by Inside Hoops
Here’s ESPN Los Angeles reporting on the Lakers:
The Los Angeles Lakers have agreed to a multiyear extension with general manager Mitch Kupchak.
The Lakers, in response to an ESPN.com report earlier Tuesday night, confirmed the new deal for Kupchak to reporters late in the fourth quarter of a 145-130 loss to the Houston Rockets.
Kupchak has presided over four NBA championships since succeeding Jerry West as the Lakers general manager in 2000. He has been with the organization since retiring as a player in 1986.
Details of Kupchak’s current contract have never been released, but he had at least another year on his current deal.
